Dont get a GTX680 unless you want a mid range card because thats what it will feel like when the GK110 comes out. The 680 was meant to be a GTX660 Ti and the PCB sucks compared to the 7970 because it was not designed to be a top end card like the 7970 is to AMD.
GK110 will be a worthy upgrade and should come in around the same price of the 680 since the 680 was meant to sell for $350.
Wait for GK110, the flagship Kepler.
and im sure if he waits another 5 months a new card will come out thats better
i for one ive had it chasing the gpu rainbow.
i will admit i was let down by the gtx 680 dont get me wrong its a great card
but wheres the overclocking they neutered what could have been a fantastic card.
although i did read where kinpin got over P15000 on a single gtx 680 http://wccftech.com/...x-680-1958-mhz/
